This weeks Bloggers Challenge is Ribbon and Lace. Those of you who know me, must really think I've lost it. If you look back on my blog over the past years, you'd hardly ever find a trace of ribbon, yet alone lace on my projects. This past year with some enabling from some friends, I've found that Ribbon and Lace can be my friend! Heck, I think I even surprised a few of you when I started adding Flourish Gems to my cards!

I dyed the Crochet Lace with Rangers Broken China Distress Stain. Both this flower and the Crinkle Flower were created in the same manner - punch a 3/4" Circle and use about 12" of ribbon - you'll want to add adhesive to the circle before you begin. Tie a knot in one end and adhere that to the center of your circle, then take the rest of the ribbon, twist and turn as you wrap it around the center knot, until the circle is complete, flip the end to the back and secure. The larger (Orange) flower started out with a 1" circle.
